Lockdown Bootcamp Courses | Online Learning
Use Lockdown to learn new career-boosting skills, kick start your side-hustle or simply prepare yourself for a brave new digital world and a new way of working.
Online learning from an accredited institution
We know times are incredibly rough and tough, but working remotely during lockdown also gives you time to reassess your career and what you really want to achieve. You could also be wondering what you can do at home – try to focus on activities that will have a positive impact on your future.
It might be that you want to grab the new opportunities that arise when the world comes back to (new) normal. Or perhaps you realise that growing your side-hustle is a more viable option. Either way, you will need new skills to do that.
For us, the question comes down to: do you want to just do a course, or grow your career?
It’s not viable for us to go the ‘free’ route, but we are trying our best to do our bit. To that end we are offering a Lockdown Bootcamp with 3 or 4 modules from the courses we think are going to be most helpful to people at this time, at an affordable rate. You’ll also be able to come back to complete the rest of these courses at some time in the future, when you’ve completed the bootcamp.
How it works
Covers: 3 self-standing modules from each of our four leading products
Choose what topic works for you:
- Digital Content and Copywriting

Timing: Start whenever you want, but you have to complete it in three or 3- 4 weeks (from commencement), depending on the course
Format: no assignment during the Lockdown Bootcamp, but you will have quizzes throughout to test your knowledge (5 opportunities each time)
At the end: You will get a Certificate of Participation, extra evidence that you squeezed the most out of your lockdown experience.
